The red and black fans are not happy...

Western Sydney Wanderers supporters have reacted negatively on social media to a letter addressed to members from club chairman Paul Lederer.

Tensions flared between the club and supporters following Tuesday's 2-0 loss to Melbourne City, with fan group RBB accusing football authorities of ejecting and banning members voicing their opinion at the players during the half-time interval.

Lederer responded by penning the letter, which was sent out on Thursday, that aimed to reiterate a bright future for the struggling club, who sit in eighth place on the A-League table with only two wins from 10 matches.

However the statement wasn't received well by a section of Wanderers fans, with some accusing Lederer of not holding himself accountable for their plight, while others criticised the club's recent recruitment.

Lederer completely pinning our hopes on the new stadium.

He says all the right "buzzwords" but we need much more than a new stadium to stop this club continuing to go backwards on the park. https://t.co/1JCOeZyj8x

The Wanderers will be aiming to revive their season on Saturday night when they host Melbourne Victory at ANZ Stadium.
